Notes from the May 20th Session; TOPIC: Flowers

The session opened with Ralph Sutter inviting Bob Grover to speak about the recently published biography of his life, Always a Quest, written over the period of 5 years by Bob's wife, Elise Wäälen. The book is available at http://booklocker.com/books/9644.html

Sutter then called attention to two new links on the Digital Photography web site. They are
Gimp 2.10.0; an open-source image manipulation program
and
Meetup Group - How Photographers Think
www.meetup.com/How-Photographers-Think

Sutter then played a video slide show of flowers found both in his back yard and on Santa Cruz Island.

Alan Raul showed flowers shot in camera raw and then optimized for true color.

John Waller shared more flowers. Waller used ProShow Producer, a professional grade slide show creation program, taking advantage of its numerous capabilities.

Bob Styerwalt offered a profusion of flowers as well. Rather than overwhelm the group with his many excellent shots of individual flowers, he added collages featuring digital floral bouquets.

Kaye Raul, frustrated that she couldn't export her images from her computer to a portable media, brought her MacBook Pro laptop to the meeting and displayed her sharp images via Ralph's Apple TV. Her images and her perserverance were well-received.

Bob Grover added a historical perspective to the meeting with a presentation of former members of the SLO Bytes Digital Photography Group and their field trip to the San Luis Obispo Botanical Gardens. Thanks Bob.
